Aussie songwriter-turned-pop force Sia is back with another black-and-blonde affair starring Dance Moms’ Maddie Ziegler. The pairing is pretty much old hat now, but it’s still entertaining. The choreography for “Cheap Thrills” is a bit more fun and incorporates some hip-hop movement as Maddie and two other dancers bounce around for a high-energy routine making silly faces in nude leotards. Sia shows up in the second half of the video, and she may or not be making the same silly faces under her signature huge wig, but who knows? The moves match one of the lighter songs on This Is Acting. It’s a fun watch self-directed by Sia with the help of go-to director Daniel Askill. Check it out.
This Is Acting is out now on RCA.
